Default my opinion

My opinion is that if you buy a brushed RTR SCT for under 250.00 make no mods but what they give you in the kit to work with, it good to go. Run any manufacturers RTR SCT tires, but on your trucks rims. Traxxas needs to keep up with the changes. It is like real cars. A stock 2008 Honda is going to blow away a stock 1988 Honda. Yes Traxxas started the SCT, as well as Henry Ford built the model T. I really don't care what class I race in, as long as I have a class to be in.

So, I guess you can look at it that way. But, all the trucks except a slash have been moved into another class. I guess the other class is the stock class now. This is referring back to Nighthawk.

I guess it is called the Slash class for a reason. Lol! So do I race in the Losi class?? Haha! I really don't care. I will put it down on the track with the buggy's if I have too. That will make one hell of a challenge for me. Sharpen my skills real quick. Lol! I will follow the rules at any track. And if there is no class for me to run, I will turn Marshall all day and have fun anyways.

Only if more people had your mindset, then it would be a non-problematic world.

I am getting the Himoto buggy together finally. Should have the cheap Himoto ready for stiff competition. The transformation was cheap to try and make a competitor with it. They actually have some nice mods for there stuff. The hardware sucks though!! Changed all that over and bolted everything, no more E clips Have all the parts coming for the MBX6 this week also. Going to give the Himoto a trashing since I have the Mugen to race this year.

Default Protect Your paint!!!

Some of you asked, so hear it is. This is the best way to protect your hard earned money and time painting your RC bodies. 3M Rocker Panel Spray Clear. I have used this and it works extremely well. It will add a thin (depends on how you apply it) rubber feeling flexible coating protecting your paint from chips and scratches. Now nothing is going to protect your paint from rubbing parts. This will wipe away dirt very easy also. I have not had this flake off either.

Oh yyeeah!!!! No more rubbing tires.Definitly like to get atleast 5-6 truggies comfortably.A good many have truggies for the new season,and even 1/8 scale buggy racing was a little tight so we are extending the track BIGGER and it will have a LOOOOONG Sweet straightaway!!!!!!!! I wouldnt want to waste my $ on a Full Mod just to reach half throttle,so that shouldnt be a problem.
